Welcome to Grandma's Enchanted Fairy Garden

This is the first scene I set up in the BBQ. Most of these items were things I already
had in my house. If my garden had a theme at this point, it would be titled 'repurposed.'
I started my Fairy Garden three years ago. 

I was inspired by an article I saw in a gardening magazine that featured a few lovely fairy gardens. I told my husband about it and his response was "why don't you start it in the BBQ in the backyard, by that old lemon tree?" So that is what I did; I cleaned up the area around the BBQ, dug up the dirt around the lemon tree, replaced it with wood chips and it has only expanded from there (I will have an entry detailing this repurposing at a later date). 

Since then, I'm sure my husband regrets giving me the go ahead and I only have plans to expand further once I fully retire.

My family has helped me in so many ways to realize my passion for fairy gardens. My husband bought me a wonderful computer to help me connect to the world wide web and my grandchildren helped me learn about Facebook, Pinterest and my newest venture, blogging.

Through this blog I hope to connect with other fairy garden enthusiasts. I hope I can inspire people to expand or experiment with the hobby I feel passionate about and I look forward to sharing stories, photos and tips with my followers.



  1. Hello Grandma Sandy! I have a small fairy garden in a container on the patio. I am going to be expanding to the yard next year. We have a nice size island that needs a personality, perfect for a fairy village. I will be following you and your blog to gain some ideas and maybe share some ideas. Nice to meet you..... Candy

    1. Loved hearing from you, Candy. I would love to share ideas with you. I can't wait to see what you come up with! I'm new to blogging so bare with me. I am doing my best to do a minimum of one post a week and so far it seems like I'm ahead.
